Overview

Green Day’s punk opera "American Idiot," adapted for the stage by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer, will continue Outré Theatre Company’s sixth full season as a provocative cultural institution in South Florida. This is Outré’s second production in its new home at the recently opened Pompano Beach Cultural Center, following its disturbingly timely production of the seminal dystopia "1984."  In this Tony- and Grammy Award winning punk rock opera, three working-class young men struggle to find meaning against a backdrop of suburban anesthesia, forced patriotism, and dreams hovering forever just out of reach. Johnny, Will, and Tunny each strive to escape the prepackaged, commodified existence of American consumerism and jingoism, trying to find some sort of meaningful existence.
